The Board of Regents is holding a workshop on July 12 and 13 which will cover a wide number of topics related to Western. But just to be on the safe side so they don't get any local input that may embarrass either the University Administration or the Board, they're holding the workshop in Albuquerque.

Here’s a list of subjects that I hope the Regents discussed or at least recognized as problems during their retreat:

High cost of Western: Western has the highest costs in the state.

Decline of the Nursing program: WNMU’s nursing program has some of the lowest pass rates in the state.

Decline of the Athletic Program: Uncompetitive teams, collapse of attendance at games.

Decline of Undergraduate Enrollment: Undergraduate enrollment is down by about 20% in the last few years.

Decline of Scholarship Money from the Foundation: Scholarship money is down by about 50% while the President’s
Discretionary Fund is spending over$50,000 a year on activities that the Foundation will not make public.

Loss of Money at the Golf Course: As of December 2016 the course has lost $100,000.

Effectiveness of Marking Program: Western spends about $1 million a year on marking with falling enrollment.

Low occupancy rate in the Dorms: Occupancy is only about 75%. All students have to pick up the deficit through student fees.

Lack of salary increases for faculty and staff
